PROGRAM/DEPARTMENT SUMMARY:

Mercy Corps sees greater potential for impact in the response to the conflict in Syria if the strengths and contributions of both the international community and Syrian civil society groups are effectively leveraged.  Mercy Corps’ Investing in Syrian Humanitarian Action (ISHA) Project (funded primarily by OFDA with limited contribution by Dfid) is designed to advice, support, and coach targeted Syrian civil society organizations to better and more efficiently serve conflict-affected communities. The project takes a demand-driven approach to capacity development, and utilizes creative methodologies for remote engagement, including both on- and off-line e-learning and broadening access to Arabic language resources for the wider Syrian humanitarian community.  This partner-centered project takes a learning-by-doing approach to providing direct financial and capacity development support to selected partners delivering humanitarian assistance in the WASH, Shelter, Distribution (NFI/voucher), Protection, and Livelihoods sectors in Syria. ISHA sits within the Syria country program as its own stand-alone project, encompassing 100% of its own team for finance, operations, M&E, program functions.
